6/24: Favorited a Twitter pitch; I sent query and pages.
9/6: Full request. I had to wait a few weeks to send it, as I was in the middle of finishing up a non-exclusive R&R.
10/13: Notified of offer from another agent. The day before my deadline, she finished reading it and said she loved it, and asked for more details about my writing path, future projects, etc. We chatted, but ultimately she had to pass, since she said she's a bit swamped right now and one of her client's newest manuscripts has a similar feel to mine; she did, however, say I was welcome to get in touch in the future should I find myself ever needing representation again. I accepted another offer from an agent I think is the perfect match for me, but I adore Ammi-Joan and highly recommend her to anyone who has the chance to query her.

Absolute pleasure to speak with. Very fast to reply (I was sent via a referral), enthusiastic. Offered rep; after much agonizing I ultimately accepted an offer from a different agent.
